    Sutphen Corporation Enters the Tractor Drawn Aerial Market

    Sutphen Corporation adds to its dynamic family of aerials with a new Sutphen Tractor Drawn Aerial (TDA)

    DUBLIN, OHIO – Sutphen Corporation, the largest family-owned fire apparatus manufacturer in the nation, announces the launch of the Sutphen tractor drawn aerial.

    Adding to Sutphen’s expansive family of aerials, the 131-year-old, family-owned business offers its renown mid-mount design, its leading rear-mount design and, now, its new tractor drawn aerial design.

    “Sutphen is proud to introduce our new TDA into our product mix, allowing us to welcome more fire departments into the Sutphen family,” said fourth-generation family member and Sutphen vice president, Julie Sutphen Phelps. “It is designed to support the needs of today’s firefighters, featuring our extreme-duty chassis and the unmatched strength of our aerial device. We are confident it will be the most sought-after TDA on the market.”

    The first Sutphen tractor drawn aerial will be manufactured for DeKalb County Fire Rescue in DeKalb County, Georgia. The truck was sold through Sutphen’s official Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina dealer, Williams Fire Apparatus.

    “Since the 1980s, DeKalb County Fire Rescue has been a loyal Sutphen and Williams Fire Apparatus customer,” said president and owner of Williams Fire Apparatus, Matt Williams. “With their intimate knowledge of our aerials, processes and people of both Sutphen and Williams Fire, they were the perfect candidate to be the first department to receive the new Sutphen TDA.”

    DeKalb County Fire Rescue will take delivery of the Sutphen TDA later this year. Until then, details and finishing touches are being placed on the apparatus.

    “Working with Sutphen on this project has been an incredible and exciting experience,” said DeKalb County Fire Rescue Captain Bryan Dobson. “Although we have worked with Sutphen and dealer Williams Fire Apparatus for over 32 years, this is the first time to help build not just a new apparatus, but an entirely new product alongside Sutphen’s team, we have been blown away. From the concept of design to the production line, we have worked together every step of the way to ensure a strong product!”

    Additional information will become available once the truck is officially completed.

    Sutphen Corporation Shatters Industry Record

    Sutphen Corporation’s new industrial pumper is third-party rated at a record 6,000 gallons per minute from draft

    DUBLIN, OHIO – Sutphen Corporation, the largest family-owned fire apparatus manufacturer in the nation, announces that its new Sutphen Industrial Solutions pumper shattered the industry’s record with a third-party rating of 6,000 gallons per minute from draft.

    While officially rated at 6,000 gallons per minute from draft, the industrial pumper is capable of flowing over 6,500 gallons per minute from draft with unmatched abilities to pump from a pressurized source.

    “As we continue to innovate and build our industrial portfolio, this record-setting apparatus solidifies Sutphen as a leader in the industrial fire industry,” said Zach Rudy, Sutphen’s director of sales and marketing. “Between our renown pumpers and world-class aerials, we provide our customers with the best options in the industrial fire market.”

    Built on a Sutphen extreme-duty, Monarch chassis, the #304 stainless steel industrial body was manufactured for the extreme conditions found on an industrial fire ground. Complete with a Double Thunder, Hale’s 6,000 gallon per minute mid-ship pump, and a direct-inject foam system, the unit highlights Sutphen’s abilities to integrate innovation into every aspect of its trucks.

    “We are proud to have participated in bringing this powerful, high-quality, heavy-duty industrial pumper to the market,” said Jim Kirvida, leader Sutphen Industrial Solutions. “Collaboration between our two like-minded engineering and manufacturing teams resulted in a record-breaking rating of 6000+ GPM, proving Sutphen a respected leader in the industrial fire market.”

    Sutphen and its network of dealers are currently demonstrating the unit across the country while it awaits a buyer. The demonstration unit is available for an accelerated delivery.

    Sutphen Corporation Introduces New 36-Inch Custom Cab Length

    Sutphen Corporation’s adds a new 36-inch cab length to its product line up 

    DUBLIN, OHIO – Sutphen Corporation, the largest family-owned fire apparatus manufacturer in the nation, adds a 36-inch custom cab length to its product line up. The 130-year-old business now offers four different custom cab length options.

    Measuring 36 inches from the center of the front wheel well to the end of the cab, the new two-door custom cab option allows departments the opportunity to reduce unused cab space while remaining in Sutphen’s renown custom cab and chassis. Sutphen now offers 36-inch, 56-inch, 62-inch and 73-inch cab length options, all of which are placed on the family-owned business’s renown Monarch extreme-duty chassis.

    “This new cab is a testament to our innovative spirit,” said Zach Rudy, Sutphen’s director of sales and marketing. “As one of the core principles and driving factors of our business, this new cab option opens the door for customers who may need to reduce travel size or only use two-firefighter crews.”

    Sutphen’s first 36-inch cab was designed and manufactured as an air and light truck for the Greensboro Fire Department in Greensboro, North Carolina.

    “It does more than just fill bottles on calls,” said Eric Campbell a Greensboro Fire Department engineer. “It provides supplies for rehab; it also provides supplies for the guys whenever they’re done with a fire to clean their gear.”

    Campbell continued by saying the truck only has one person assigned for each 24-hour shift, so the department doesn’t need room for extra people. With the extra room provided by the two-door cab, the truck is a catch-all and prepared for any situation the department may face.

    “After speaking with the Greensboro Fire Department and understanding their needs and wants, we were able to work with them to provide this new two-door custom cab,” said Justin Howell, Sutphen’s senior sales territory manager. “It is a first for Sutphen, but as a long-time customer, the Greensboro Fire Department trusted us to provide them with their exact needs and wants. We thank them for their trust in our process, our engineering and our innovation.”

    The chassis is complete with Sutphen’s cathacoated 10” double frame rails, a 214 ¼-inch wheelbase, an exterior cab compartment for the driver’s gear, Sutphen’s classic Federal Q2B in the center of the grille and more.

    The body of the truck was built through Sutphen’s partnership with SVI Trucks. The two engineering departments worked closely together to create the best possible apparatus for the department.

    The body is complete with a 40KW generator, a 7,000 PSI Bauer air compressor, two double bottle cascade fill stations, a recessed light tower on top of the body, three electric retractable awnings and 55 individual SCBA bottle holders.

 Products

  • SPH 100
    The Sutphen SPH 100 is the most versatile, most maneuverable and most emergency-scene capable 100-foot, mid-mount aerial platform on the market. Its proven design and unmatched capabilities prove this truck the ultimate firefighting apparatus....

  • Sutphen Signature Mid-Mount Design: Not only did we invent it, but we’ve perfected it.  The Mid-Mount design has been the Sutphen signature design for over 50 years, and while others have tried to copy it, no one can match the quality and dependability of a Sutphen.

    Lower Center of Gravity: The Sutphen Mid-Mount design and lower overall weight naturally contribute to a lower center of gravity.  An apparatus with a lower center of gravity is a safer, more stable, and better handling piece of equipment.

    Ease of Maintenance and Serviceability: Not having the platform rest over the cab means not having to raise the aerial in order to tilt the cab for access to the engine or other vital chassis components.  Daily checks and service can be done inside the station or service center without moving the aerial.

    Lighter Overall Weight: Sutphen Aerial Apparatus typically have an in service weight 5-10 Tons less than our competition.  Don’t be mistaken though, lighter weight doesn’t mean lighter duty.  What lighter weight does mean is better acceleration, better breaking with shorter stopping distance, and less wear and tear on your brakes and brake components which reduces maintenance costs.

    The Strongest Aerial Device in the Industry: Four sides are always better than three, and the Four-Sided Box Boom design of the Sutphen Aerial Device makes it the strongest in the industry.  Constructed using #6061-T6 aluminum alloy and fastened with aircraft grade HuckBolt technology, the aerial has a safety factor of 3:1, unmatched in the industry.  The HuckBolt system eliminates the need for welds.  Welding weakens the material, which makes it susceptible to cracking.

    Thinking Inside the Box: We’ve built the box, now let’s put something in it.  Doesn’t it make sense to keep all of the important equipment protected inside?  The waterway, electric cables, and breathing air hoses are all housed inside the Box Boom.  There they stay protected with less chance of being damaged, which reduces the chance of costly repairs, and apparatus down time.  This also means that the Sutphen Aerial device can be placed right up against a roof cornice or building with no risk of damaging the waterway.

    Lower Aerial Maintenance: The aluminum aerial device never needs painted, and won’t rust.  Aerial slide blocks are constructed from Ultra High Molecular Weight Plastic that requires little to no maintenance.

    Climbing to New Heights: If you are in a situation where you need to climb up, or down, the climbing ladder, rest assured that your path will be a safe one.  The Sutphen climbing ladder has a clear foot path that is free from “K” bracing and other obstructions.

    Fast and Easy Set Up: From the time you arrive on scene, the Sutphen Mid-Mount Aerial can be set up and in the air in 40 seconds or less.  The fastest and most efficient set up time in the industry.  All necessary control stations, eg: Cab, Jacks, Pump, and Turntable, are located within 12’ of each other.

    Heavy Duty Body: The Sutphen body is constructed from corrosion resistant #304 Stainless Steel.  Body compartments are bolted together for strength and ease of repair.  They are tall and deep providing ample storage space for rescue tools and other bulky equipment, as well as tool mounting boards, shelves, trays, etc.

    Enclosed Ladder Storage: The SPH 100 Aerial Platform features enclosed ladder storage at the rear of the apparatus.    The standard 115’ compliment of NFPA ground ladders are stored on beam in the compartment, and an optional Truck Company Configuration provides up to 200′ of ground ladders, depending on body and option configuration.

    Hose Bed Capacity: The easily accessible hose bed is also located at the rear of the apparatus and holds 1000’ of 5” supply hose.

    Heavy Duty Cab Interior: Cab interiors are well appointed and very durable.  Stainless steel door panels are standard, and heavy duty Durawear material covers the headliner and back wall.  Bostrom Secure-All ABTS SCBA Durawear covered seats are standard.

    Superior Driving Visibility: With no platform hanging over the top of the cab, your visibility is much greater.  With the Mid-Mount design, there is nothing to block your view of busy intersections, street corner signs, or traffic lights.
